Iran embassy in Moscow says Ahmadinejad to visit Russia Tuesday
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad postponed a planned Russia visit by one day but will make the trip Tuesday, the Iranian Embassy in Moscow said.
Ahmadinejad had been expected to travel to the Russian city of Yekaterinburg on Monday and meet with President Dmitry Medvedev on the sidelines of a regional summit.
The change in plans came amid street protests in Iran following Ahmadinejad's re-election in a bitterly disputed vote Friday.
Not long before his expected arrival, the embassy said Monday that Ahmadinejad would not come that day.
Earlier, the embassy reported that Ahmadinejad had put off the trip indefinitely and it was unclear whether he will come at all.
